Undergraduate Research Prizes

The HRI Prizes for Research in the Humanities allow us to celebrate excellence in humanities scholarship.

These prizes recognize outstanding humanities research at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, with awards given at the undergraduate, graduate, and faculty levels.

Full-time University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign undergraduate students are invited to submit essays written for an Urban campus course taken for credit in the current academic year (or completed after the deadline for last year’s prize submission). Submissions may be nominated by the faculty member of the course for which the paper was written, or self-nominated, with the signature approval of the faculty member required on the nomination form in either case.
